Amazingly, the second season of Eastbound and Down manages to maintain the standard of hilarity that the first one established, and even SURPASSES it. This is particularly impressive, considering that this season could not rely upon the crowd-pleasing presence of Will Ferrell, prancing about his BMW dealership in a white wig.
One must be careful, however- if you watch too much of this show in one sitting, Kenny Powers' attitude WILL rub off on you! And you absolutely cannot show up to the office spouting off whatever's on your mind, a la Kenny Powers. This outrageous character has absolutely no filter, and no comprehension of what socially acceptable behavior is. And that's a big part of what makes Eastbound and Down so ridiculously funny. Danny McBride was quite possibly born to play this role. And every time you begin to think this guy couldn't be any more of a self-centered low life, he starts to redeem himself, and show that he just might be human after all. His tough exterior, brash behavior, and dismissal of anyone who doesn't happen to be named "Kenny Powers" is really nothing more than an elaborate, psychological self-defense mechanism- but that doesn't make it any less funny and delightful.
From fleeing to Mexico to "rekindling" his career in a really, really bad baseball league, this is Kenny Powers at his best and worst. He befriends little people and giants alike, and then makes mortal enemies of them. He finds his estranged father, and then loses him again. He shoots Stevie in the leg with a pistol, and convinces Stevie that it was probably his own damn fault. This is an epic, hilarious, soul-searching journey embarked upon by Kenny Powers in a foreign land. Just be sure to have some cold beers on hand when you begin watching- I guarantee that Kenny will make you want to drink with him!
Season 2 expands the show's story line of a controversial, unemployed MLB player with unrealistic expectations of getting called back to the majors. The characters continue to adapt to whatever problems they create for themselves. The humor is edgy, often crude and directed at every known ethnic group in a way that demonstrates Kenny Powers treats people without regard to anything except what they can do for him.
The people who might want to avoid this show are Social Justice Warriors anyone who belongs to a religious cult.
